No Need to be Koi, Roy!

I've had the great fortune of having customers ask for some larger Japanese-style tattoos lately! It has turned out to be a nice chance to challenge myself, and to study art and tattoos from another culture. Myth and folklore are some of my favorite things to research- besides tattooing- so for these works, the process has been particularly awesome! Here are two photos of Japanese style Koi- one with a simple water composition as background on a chest panel, and the other depicting part of the heroic tale of Kintaro the Golden Boy on an upper thigh. Bushido!
